If it's unplugged, and something is lit, it must be on a battery, like memory for the clock or something.

Element light stays on after all power control knobs are in off position?


Good Afternoon Cindy,

I see that you are having trouble with the element light staying on after all power control knobs have been put into the off position on your Frigidaire range, model# FEF366EC. The Element ON indicator lights will glow when one or more of the surface elements are turned ON. A quick glance at these indicator lights when cooking is finished is an easy check to be sure all control knobs are turned OFF. The Hot Surface indicator light will continue to glow AFTER the control knob is turned to the OFF position and will glow until the heating surface area has cooled sufficiently. I suggest resetting your appliance by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. Once power is restored, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "clock" button, and then you will press and hold down either the up or down arrows until the correct time appears. Try turning the burner on that the indicator light stays on the most. When you turn it off if you are still having trouble with the element light staying on, I suggest contacting a local authorized technician. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Hand-wheel above the lighting knob springs back when i move it! Have I to light it first to be able to regulate? Ulf Manual?


Move that knob to PILOT and mash it down, then keep a holdin it down till it stays down on it's own after you done lit it. The copper/nickel alloy inside the thermocouple tip must get hot enough to produce electrical current and keep that sprang loaded electromagnet safety feature open. The whole idea is IF the pilot goes out the magnet will release (when the thermocouple cools down) and close off the flow of raw gas. Clever ain't it? Once you get the pilot to stay lit by itself when you let off the knob, then advance the knob to the ON position. The heater should come on unless you have a separate temp knob. If that is the case depending on how cold it is you would turn that temp knob up a hair.

Surface unit control problem


The burner element that is staying ON is also the same one causing the surface light to stay on.
The switch that controls the element is bad.
Unplug the range. Open the switch control console and replace the defective switch.
Make sure the range is unplugged because of high voltage in the console.

Kenmore stove surface unit light stays on


When the indicator light does not shut off when the burners are turned to the off position, this indicates one of the infinites switches are shorted. If comfortable with electricity, unplug the unit and remove the rear cover exposing the infinite (burner) switches. Using a bright flashlight, shine directly on one of the switches and you will see the following markings. L1 - L2 - H1 - H2, and then the Letter P. This letter P is for the pilot light. Since there is no way of determining which switch is shorted, remove the wire from the letter P on one switch. Isolate the wire removed so it is not touching anything. Place a piece of black electrical tape around the end to be safe. Next, plug it back in. If the light is still lit, move on to the next one until you have found the switch that once the wire is removed, the light does not light anymore. Replace that infinite/burner switcha nd all is well. If I can help further, I am here.

Waiting to hear from you,

The hot surface indicator light remains ON all the time.


Your hot surface indicator light might have a short that causes it to stay on all of the time. If you can, try unplugging it for a little while and plugging it back up. If the light is still on, you have a short. You can still use the stove, but the light staying on will not be any help to you.

Hot Surface Light stays on


Our success has been to heat the elements to hot for about 5 minutes. Then let cool to reset temp sensor.

Can cause the problem by turning a burner on for a short period of time
